Bear Creek

When I was a wood carver, before I know there was gold nuggets laying out in the dirt of the Deserts I would gather Pine knots to carve Trappers & Indians for bean & gas money around Pinos Alto N,M, The image is a carving of a Eskimo, Broken Tusk. that I carved out of a pine knot found on Bear Creek'

While I was camped there a small girl turned over a rock & found a 1.3 gram nugget in the Creek, She sure started a Minny gold rush.

I met a couple there that had 2 boys & were teaching them the Indian ways, the small one killed a lizard & the mother asked him when he wonted to eat it, super or breakfast? Since it was supper time he picked breakfast, I saw him the next day & asked him how was Mister Lizard, I am sure as hell not going to kill any more lizards, He convinced me he was

telling the truth. Was a good time, chuck

Another interesting story Chuck. Keep em coming! I really like the wood carving. I used to make carvings until I almost cut my thumb off twice so I decided to stop doing that. Do you still make them?

I never tried lizard but heard it's no so bad, better with tobasco sauce.

Gold is ever on my mind. chuck

John,

I think the bigger the lizard the tastier they get, but that's just what I heard somewhere or made up.
